I know I was vaccinated for Hepatitis but I do not remember for which one? (I know I received three injections within a reasonable amount of time) Can you tell me which one you think it is and WHAT it protects me from. Thanking you in advance.

Response from Dr. Rodriguez-Torres

You probably received the Hepatitis B vaccine.This vaccine is given in 3 doses;baseline ,1 month and 6 months from baseline.It will protect you from contracting Hepatitis B.You can check if the vaccine was effective inducing immunity by a blood test.
